Video and podcast for teaching confidentiality

This 60 Minutes interview with two attorneys who stayed silent for 26 years while an innocent man–Alton Logan (also interviewed in the piece)–remained in prison sparks great class discussion regarding the duty of confidentiality:  Lawyers Keep 26 Year Secret  http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=4126194n

I’ve started assigning podcasts as part of the class preparation assignment — this short piece highlights information security issues for lawyers related to client confidentiality, and is a useful supplement to the reading material in our casebook:  ABA Law Practice Management Information Security for Lawyers Podcast http://www.americanbar.org/content/dam/aba/multimedia/law_practice_management/201106_information_security_for_lawyers.authcheckdam.mp3
